We are leaving tonight to go home to Memphis. I am so excited. We haven’t been home since May. Why are we going, you ask? We are going to celebrate CAMERON’S FIRST BIRTHDAY!!!!!! I think I am more excited about his birthday then I have ever been about any of my own. Last night Mike surprised Cameron with his very first birthday present just from Daddy. Mike went out and bought it by himself with money he had gotten for his birthday (it was on the 15th). He got him his very first Tonka truck. It makes noises and even moves by itself when you push a button. Cameron had no trouble figuring out what to do with wrapping paper, the second he saw the present on the floor he started tearing into it. He wasn’t too sure about the truck moving, it kind of scared him. But by this morning he was loving it and played with it for quite a while.
We are going to attempt to make the 10 hour drive overnight. We thought and thought about it and decided that may be easiest for Cameron to be able to just sleep the whole way. We’re not looking forward to the actual process however. Your priorities sure do change once you have kids huh?
Not only does he have his party this weekend, but he will also be going trick-or-treating for the first time. He is going as a lion. Then we’re going to carry the lion theme over to his birthday party on Sunday. My good friend Annie is making his cakes. They are going to be the cutest little lions.
So there, you have it. That’s what we’re excited about in the Shaeffer house! I can’t wait to get back and posts pictures of all that we do!
(Oh, and just for any potential robbers out there, we do have a house-sitter who will be staying with our beast of a dog! 🙂 )
